Three weeks ago we reported: “Microsoft Surface 2 AT&T LTE Version Passes Through The FCC, Release Expected In Next Few Months.” During a Reddit AmA on new Surface devices back in September 2013, Surface team confirmed that they are working on LTE version of Surface devices.
Q: “Why was LTE not included on neither Surface nor Surface Pro?”
Panos Panay: “We didn’t talk about it today, but Surface 2 will be launching an awesome LTE SKU early next year!”
Now new information has come to light that the new Surface 2s w/ LTE have been mass produced and are sitting in Microsoft to start to build up inventory. Our friends at WPCentral have received photos of the device, including the box that reads “AT&T Network Ready” but are not sharing them publicly at this time.
It is expected that the new Surface 2 w/ LTE will be unveiled at the Build Conference early next month.
